Water Delivery – Flowmaster 250 Flow Meters
Delta Fire’s range of water delivery equipment includes the Flowmaster 250 range of hydrant flow and pressure test instruments. These units are deigned to assist the Fire and Rescue Services, Water Companies an Industrial users with accurate flow and pressure measurement.
The Flowmasters are used to determine which hydrants are working, the flow rate from the hydrant and the water main capacity helping to locate leaks and obstructions.
Measuring instantaneous flow rates of up to 3000 litres per minute and pressures up to 25 bar the Flowmaster is simply attached to the hydrant, switched on and flow and pressure will be measured.
The Flowmaster can be purchased in a digital format (as pictured) with a data logger allowing for complete data analysis and storage via the flash memory (no data is lost when switched off). The internal data logger will log both flow and pressure and has a ‘start/stop’ recording facility via a push button or automatic recording of flow events when trigger conditions are established.
The 64Kb storage capacity will provide 6 hours of data storage when the sampling rate is one second and 360 hours when the sampling rate is one minute. A date/time stamp is added to each new log file.
A mini USB cable is supplied for PC connection and, when connected, will provide ‘live views’ of both flows and pressures. A highly visual graph is automatically generated of the log data and a report can be sent directly to the printer or saved in .bmp format for transfer to MS Word or Excel programs.
Water Delivery – FlowPod 3000 Flow Meters
The FlowPod 3000 is designed for in-line use and provides accurate and reliable water flow and volume measurements where and when you need them. This compact unit can be connected directly to a low pressure outlet on a pump or between two lengths of hose – simply connect, switch on and measure.
The full bore sensor has no mechanical parts and does not interfere with the flow of water. A model is available with a pressure transducer that will accurately measure pressures if desired. All models have a large LCD readout which is easy to view from a distance and weigh in at just 7.7 kilos including the battery pack and adaptors. The integral carrying handle contributes to the overall ease of use.
There are principally three variants of the FlowPod 3000 available – the FlowPod 3000 standard flow meter, the FlowPod 3000 flow meter with data logging facility and the FlowPod 3000 flow meter with data logger and pressure facility.
The main applications for the FlowPod is for the monitoring of flow rates into sensitive equipment, establishing correct flow rates for foam induction, measuring the volume of delivered water onto a ship or for environmental reporting, flow testing of hydrants, pumps and fire fighting equipment.
The FlowPod 3000 with data logger allows the user to create flow and volume reports quickly from the data stored in the integral data logger using the powerful graphical software.
Measuring in at only 340mm long x 155mm wide and 320mm high this compact unit is easily stored and transported. A dedicated mounting bracket is available for secure storage on the fire appliance which can be bolted on in any available space. The bracket has a male instantaneous adapter at the base for quick release allowing the meter to ‘plug in’ and ‘plug out’ as required. An adjustable strap is provided at the top of the bracket to ensure stability in transit
Power is provided by a NiMH internal battery pack running DC12v @250mA. Finished in ‘fireman red’ the anodised aluminium construction can withstand heat ranges from -10° to +50°C and is very durable and hard wearing thanks to a corrosion resistant casing. With a flow range of 30 to 3,000 litres per minute and a pressure rating of 49 bar the FlowPod3000 is a popular choice in many sectors
Delta Fire’s range of water deliver equipment is manufactured to exacting standards and the technically advanced range of Flowmaster Test Instruments are no exception. These specialised units are now in service with a large number of staff from a wide range of industries around the world and are a valuable addition to Delta’s Water Delivery range.
